Pregnant Man to Have Baby Number 4?
Thomas Beatie, the pregnant man is back in the news again. Beatie is a transman who retained his female sex organs after gender reassignment surgery because he wanted to have biological children. Using a sperm donor, Beatie had three children. Recently, Beatie and his girlfriend Amber Nicholas (he was married to Nancy Gillespie but the couple has since divorced) sat down with New Edition to talk about having another child–but this time, his girlfriend will be carrying.
The two will be using Beatie’s own eggs, since his are younger. He’s excited to support his new partner through her pregnancy and to add to his family. “We hope we can educate and inspire other people,” says girlfriend. Both say they’re proud of their family and will explain the details of where they came from as the kids get older.
